Hendricks County Humane Society (HCHS) is a not-for-profit 501(c)-3 organization, founded in 1970. We are governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. The Articles of Incorporation-ARK, Board Policy, By-Laws, and Guidelines are the founding documents from which the Board takes its direction.
We operate thanks to our DONORS
Our programs solely depend on the generosity of our donors; membership drives; fundraising events; bequests and memorial contributions. We do not receive tax money or government assistance. The Humane Society is dedicated to “Facilitating Animal Welfare by Finding Homes and Saving Lives”; our primary purpose is to serve the animals and people living in Hendricks County.
Our MISSION STATEMENT
Facilitating animal welfare by finding homes, saving lives.
Ending pet overpopulation.

Office and Staff
The Humane Society office is open on Monday from 3:00-7:00 p.m. and on Wednesday and Friday afternoons from noon until 4:00 p.m. We employ part-time staff to tend to general office operations and to assist families who are interested in visiting or adopting one of the animals in our building.
Looking for the Hendricks County Animal Shelter?
While one part of our mission is to care for and foster animals; we are not an animal shelter per se. The ANIMAL SHELTER is located across from Hendricks Regional Hospital on Old US Hwy 36 or East Main Street in Danville. The HCACS is funded by taxpayer money. The phone number is 317-745-9250, and they are closed on Wednesdays.
